The Story of You and Me: An Urban Pop Narrative

By: Amy Gernux '13

Advising Faculty: N/A

My honors project confronts the challenge of identifying and utilizing my personal choreographic voice in the context of narrative dance. I have constructed a narrative which currently exists in the form of a short story as well as a chalk mural. The formal presentation of my honors thesis culminates with a 25-minute piece for 17 dancers performed in Myers Studio. This piece brings together my choreographic voice, text from the written story, and the live recreation of the mural, all to the music of Freddie Mercury and Queen, my constant inspiration.
